This is me!
First of all, HUGE congratulations to you on your engagement and thanks for dropping by here as part of your wedding plans. I feel honoured. I truly love this job – being with happy people in lovely places sharing good times together. And to be able to document and create beautiful mementos of the occasion is the icing on the cake.
I’m a naturalised northerner – from Dorset originally – but I’ve been in the North West since 1994 and there’s nowhere else I’d rather be. My soul mate is a true Manc, and together we’ve been bringing up our two wonderful daughters in Prestwich for the last 18 years already. Time flies!
Out & about
When I’m not shooting weddings, I love to get out in the glorious countryside of this part of the world. But my teenage girls aren’t so keen to join us any more so it’s just the two of us most recently. That might be a blessing of course! The kids prefer the city buzz of Manchester just down the road instead. And though my raving days may be behind me now, it’s great to have such a dynamic and exciting city on our doorstep to keep us busy in plenty of other ways.
After family and photography, it’s music and food that get me going. And preferably with an edge… if every meal came with chillis, I’d be a happy man. I love to cook, so my own dishes certainly do bring the heat. Same with the tunes – I definitely favour the more esoteric and interesting offerings out there – of which there are plenty. Quick nod to BBC 6 Music at this point I think.
If you like my work and think we’d get along, and you like the idea of not being bossed around on your big day, please do get in touch. I’d love to hear from you. Why not follow me on Facebook or Instagram too. Drop me a line to say hello, and I’d be pleased to chat some more with you.
